“Calling all superheroes!”

Do you need a better work/life balance? Do you want to keep up your superhero powers and skills?

There are a number of shifts available for Bank Band 5 Nurses across the Children & Young People’s Division at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals.

We want all our young patients and their families to have a positive experience and are looking for some very special staff to join our team. Superpowers include ability to prioritise, resilience, communication, working as part of a team and independently, time management skills, a willingness to develop and also the ability to maintain high professional standards with an element of fun.

The unit includes a 28 bedded inpatient ward, 2 high dependency beds, Paediatric Assessment Unit, Children’s day case unit and specialities include general paediatric medicine and surgery, ENT, max fax, orthopaedics, plastic surgery, neurology and shared care oncology.

We have a dedicated outreach team which manages care for children with enuresis, epilepsy, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, complex needs and acute care.

Working with others we have close links with the Emergency Department, Children’s Outpatients Department and Community Paediatric Service. Our ward based team is multi-disciplinary including physios, pharmacist, play specialists, patient experience coordinator and the CAMHS team.

We are a forward thinking team and have a number of exciting developments planned, we value the voice of staff as well as patients and there will be opportunities for involvement in shaping the future of the unit.

Our priority is patient safety and experience and we believe this is achieved by creating a positive experience for staff in the workplace.
